tr background-color?

Hi,

Can someone confirm whether it's possible to set the background-color
property in CSS for a table row (<tr>)?

My code is:

table { display: table; table-layout: fixed; }
tr { display: table-row; }
td, th { display: table-cell; }

and...

table { text-align: left; border: 1px solid silver; font-size: 1em;
width: 100%; margin: 2px; }
td { padding: 0.3em; }
tr { border: 1px solid silver; }
tr.darker { background-color: #cccccc; }
tr.lighter { background-color: #f7f7f7; }
th { padding: 0.3em; }

Many thanks,
Matt :)

Indirectly:

tr.classname td{background-color:#aaa}
tr { display: table-row; }
td, th { display: table-cell; }


Specifying default values is normally pointless.

Directly too. You cannot see it of course, when the table cells have a
non-transparent background color.

Not in this case :) I'm using 'body *' selectors at the start of my
stylesheets to reduce browser inconsistencies .

Thanks! I'll try that :)

Hi Christopher,

That didn't work for me (I set the td's background-color to
'transparent'). I'm using Firefox 1.04. Am I missing something?

I don't quite understand where your problem is. As an example, see

Please adjust your quoting style. Thank you!

I'll rephrase my question. Can a <tr> element with a display property of
'table-row' have a background-color set for it?

Many thanks,
Matt :)

I expected you'd say you're using IE, which has problems in this area.
Firefox should be fine.

In <http://webdesign.criss ov.de/temp/table-layers.html> all cells, where
the first number is odd and the second is even, should have a blue
background. I suppose you miss something in your code, which you didn't
show us (completely).
